Brewed up a batch of Apfelwein the other day. I'm probably not gonna have regular beer bottles to bottle with in a month or two (my bottles are going to other batches, trying to drink as much commercial brew as I can, hard to keep up ).
Wondering if it's a good idea to carbonate with the bottles they came in? Like I said, they're 3 quart plastic bottles. They seem pretty sturdy and strong, really thick. Is there a chance that the screw on caps will leak some CO2? I've seen that my LHBS carries plastic screw-top bottles, so I'm assuming they work.
Also, does the size of the bottle affect how long it takes to fully carbonate?
